Thanks for this feedback.  Unfortunately, installing an absolute symlink
does not make the problem disappear for firefox-esr, contrary to various
reports in this thread.

If you'd like to try it yourself:

$ sudo apt-get install devscripts
$ sudo apt-get build-dep ublock-origin
$ debcheckout ublock-origin
$ cd ublock-origin
$ origtargz
$ git checkout abs-symlink
$ debuild -b -uc
$ sudo debi

... and fire up Firefox ESR.
